Chicago, Aug. 10. The Irish National

lr. Tccling created a sensation by read-in"-
a telegram from Dublin signed by
ClTarles McCarthy urging the convention in
effect to endorse any means for making Ire
land free. Mr. Daniels said Mr. Teeling
did not speak for the League or the people
of Ireland. Great confusion followed.
"When quiet was restored the following
platform was presented:
Vv'e, the delegates to the Iri-.ii National

freedom, and the right of a people to frame

which has been advantageously eatended to
the colonial possessions of Great Britian,

First "We express our heartiest and most

course pursued by Charles Stewart Parnell
and his parliamentary associates in the
English house of commons and have now

thanks to Mr. Gladstone for hi. great ef

gratitude to the English. Scotch and AVel-h
Democracy for the support given to the
great liberal leader and his Irish policy
during the recent general elections.
Kesolved, That this convention hereby
returns its thanks to the American people
and press for the generous .support which
they have given to the cause of self-government
Kcsoved, That we record our sense of
the remarkable forbearance and self-re-strainst

being subjected by rack-renting landlords
and in view of the license scandalously ex

commend the laudable desjie of the people

"The delegates to the Irish National
League convention of America send greet
ing from our body, which embraces repre
sentative citizens "from every .-tate and ter
ritory in the Union and Canada, and as
sure you of their coulial endorsement of
your policy by a united and harmonious
convention. All of which is respectfully
subinitted. Geoiuh: C. B.urz,
Cofonel Atkinson of Detroit, one of the
members of the committee on resolutions,
explained on behalf of the committee in
considering the declaration contained in the
draft, that the committee, while discussing
them fully, adopted them unanimously.
Mr. Fmnerty moved the resolutions be
adopted section by section.
Cries of No! no!
Alexander Sullivan made an eloquent
address and evoked wild cheers.
Mr. Dcvoy.ofNew York, said many of
the New York delegation have come with
as many resolutions as those from Illinois
but he desired peace and harmony and
wanted them endorsed as a whole.
Mr. Davitt suggested in a spirit of har
mony that the" resolutions should once
again be read and then be adopted unani
mously. Mr.'Finnerty withdrew his motion.
The resolutions were then adopted by
the convention rising, followed by frantic
The chairman then introduced Mr. Red
mond, who spoke as follows:
The duty which devolves upon my col
leagues and myself of representing the
Irish nation at home at thi great gathering
of the li ish nation abroad, is one "in which
honor is general and the responsiblity
heaw. Perhaps the greatest glory of oui
nation is found in the fact of our people,
driven bv misfortune and misrule from the
land of their fathers, and coining to this
laud, rude and ignorant and poor, yet,
though poor, have" been able to liear an
honorable part in building up the fortunes
of America and to irive to'the world the un-
I deniable proof that in addition to their

proof of the devotion to the great cause.
perhaps unparalleled in history. The coun
try's lianL-hips. oppressions and miseries
1 which drove you or your fathers from Ire
land, welded your hearts to Ireland's cause
bv ties whieh'neither prosperity, nor riis
. tsnee, nor time can destroy nor weaken.
I The principle underlying the movement of
thi- convention is the serious recognition of
i the nationality of Ireland. We an- work-
ins not simply for the removal of griev
ances and theamclioratioa of the material
condition of our people. Nothing. I think,
is plainer than if Ireland had in the past
abandoned this principle, she could have
easily bartered her national rights to England
and in return obtained a certain amount of
prosperity. But Ireland ha preferred rags
and vermin to the spirit of liberty and
favors won by national dishonor.
This is the principle embodied in the
Irish movement for the past seven centu
ries. A sentiment honorable to England
and Ireland alike as we believe, was offered
to us by Mr. Gladstone and quite apart
from, increased the strength which Mr.
Gladstone proposed, even though tempo
rarily defeated, has given strength to our
cause. We have, I think, reason to rejoice
at the opportunity which they afforded our
suffering and exasperated people to show
the magnanimity of their natures and unal
loyed purity of their love of liberty. J What
a spectacle 'Ireland afforded to the world
when, at last, a great Englishman arose
bold enough and wise enough to do justice
to her character. Ages of heartless oppres
sion and bitter wrong; hundreds of thou
sands of martyrs to Irish freedom; ages of
stupid religious persecutions, of depopula
tion and state created famine, never ending
insult and ruthless calumny, all in that one
moment were forgotten and the feeling up
permost in the heart of the Irish race was
gratitude to the aged statesman who simply
proposed to do jiistice, and anxiety for the
"blescd oblivion of the past." Who. in
the face of the reception given the bill of
Mr. Gladstone, cramped and deformed as
it was by humiliating safeguards and un
necessary limitations, will dare to say that
the principle of our movement is merely a
case of hatred of England.
Continuing the speaker said: Once
again, the policy of conciliation has been
cast aide by England. The English vice
roy who settled the policy of liberty and
who, for the first time since 179.3 was
greeted with acclamations by the populace
in Dublin, left our shores, and in his place
h:is come one bearing the hated name of
Castle Peagh. Once again, all thoughts of
amity toward the English have vanished
from the minds of Irishmen, and today we
arc once more face to face with our heredi
tary foes. The sunshiue of hope has once
more shone upon our hind, but we have a
right to call upon the world to remember
how brightly and peacefully Ireland has
been during the brief sunshine of the past
few months. Our duty at this moment is
clear. We have given England a fost
convincing proof that on receipt of liberty
we can be trusted. I assert here today that
the government of Ireland by England is
an impossibility and 1 believe it ourduty to
make it o. 'e are not a people to tamely
submit to the yoke which once again
placed on our neck., would be unworthy of
the blood which we have inherited from
our fathers who preferred poverty to dis
honor and death to national slavery. The
national movement is in the hands of a man
who can be bold as well as cautious, and I
claim the confidence and support of the
Irish in America, not only because they arc
animated by the same principle as we are,
but because our mov ement at home is con
ducted on a wise and honest policy.
In another portion of the address he said:
"The tenant larmers of Ireland played a
part too little known and appreciated here.
They submitted to untold suffering and en
actions in patience and silence, lest by one
woul or act they would embarrass their
leaders in parlament, or cause a concession
of Home Utile. The landlords of Ireland
noted, but totally misunderstood, the mean
ing of the change of attitude and patriot
ism into.cov.aulise and the ciowbar bri
gade were once more set to work.
Still the Irish suffered in silence and
Gladstone prepared a land bill which would
have bought out the landlords at extrava
gantly high prices. But the peasants
were read)' when coupled with home rule
to pay cxhorbitant prices for their national
freedom. But 1 believe forbearance on
their part is now done. The sands have
run through the hour glass and the fight
between the landlords must revive if not
wiped out of existance while they are wait
ing for home rule.
The memory of this day will remain
while memory lasts. Your wisdom will
guide our policy; your courage will inspire
our hearts and your marvelous union will
excite our cmolation. You have good rea
son to be proud of this day. You are In
truth engaged in a noble and sacred work,
nothing 'less than championing the weak
against the strong, the helpless against the
powerful. . Youlong since earned for your
selves and your adopted country the bless
ings of the poor, llest assured tllfit when
victory sits upon our cause and freedom is
again enthroned in Ireland you will rise for
ward for the good of the poor and oppress
ed. The God of justice and mercy will also
increase your prosperity and watch eternal
over your lives."
J Like yesterday's afternoon session of the
convention, today's was slow in assembling.
It was not until after o p. m., that Judge
Fitzgerald arrived and called the delegates
to order. The galleries had been crowded
long before that time, handsomely dressed
ladies being present in great numbers.
At 3:4.1 p. m., Judge Fitzgerald rapped
with his gavel and Secretary Sutton began
to read the minutes of yesterday's proceed
ings. During the reading. Mrs. Parnell
entered and was greeted with a tremendous
outburst of applause.
The report of the committee on creden
tials was read and the statement made that
the report had already been endorsed by
Messrs. Davitt. Bedmond and Deasy. At
the outset the report defined the objects of
A delegate from Rochester, N. Y., ob
jected tolhe clause verb illy advisiue: the

punged from the report.
Mr. Brennen-, of Iowa, said: Let the del
egates go back to Ireland and say to the
English people: Not a pound of your
nails or a yard of your calico will be used
until the relations of Ireland and England
Mr. Lynch of Quebec arose to second the
gentleman from Iowa. He approved the
section though living under the BritL-h
flag. He said it should be understood that
this convention does not commit itself on
either side of one of the greatest qne-tions
in American politics.
Amid an uproar the previous question
was ordered. The question was then put
and the section remained. There was
practically no opposition.
The scene of enthusiasm ensued that hi
before occurred. Delegates rose and
cheered, shouted and waved handkerchief-.,
and it seemed the excitement was never to
cease. The section which had occasioned
so much excitement was as follows:
Section o. To hurt the enemy where lit

using all legal mean to discourage trade

Mr. Caffrey, of Philadelphia, arose and
thanked his friends for his nomination, but
he desired only to work for the people of

A delegate from Pennsylvania seconded
the nomination of McCaffrey.
Mr. McCaffrey arose and said; This con
vention has been a great success and har
monious so far; I move that Mr. Fitzgerald
be nominated by acclamation.
Ignatius Donnelly of Wisconsin said that
his "delegation's choice was John Fitzgerald.
3Ir. McAdoo of New Jersey seconded the
nomination of Mr. McCaffrey. Here was
the opportunity to press down the stale
columns of theLoudon press, that the or

An Ohio man said the entire state delega
tion was solid for Fitzgerald.
The Michigan delegation was spoken for
in the same maimer. "(Great cheering.)
New Jersey now tried in vain to get the
fioor. The chairman had recognized a del
egate from Louisiana.
Mr. McAdoo, of New Jersey, jumped to
his feet and wildly exclaimed: Don't show
your hand too plainly, Mr. Chairman.
The chairman told the delegate to pro

THE END AT LAST.
The Argument in the Anarchist Trial
Concluded and the Jury In
structed. Ciiicaoo. Aug. 19. It was well under
stood that the proceedings in the criminal
court, so far :is counsel fn the case was con
cerned, would close today and as result
there was an extraordinary crowd. Early
in his address state's attorney Grinnell said.
For a few days after the l'laymarket riot,
for a whole week as is plain from the tes
timony in this case, and from Capt. Sehaack,
there was not the least particle of knowl
edge or suspicision, great as had been the
crime committed. The magnificent efforts
of Sehaack, without my pergonal knowl
edge at the time, got the leading string
which led up the consj iracy when it wsis
for the first time we knew of Schnaubd, or
that we knew or susp-cted a conpiracy
existed at all. When we had Spies under
arrest I confess to you then and after it was
developed that a conspiracy existed.
I did not suppose that a man Ih ing in
our community would enter into a conspi
racy so hellish" mid damnable as the proof
sho'wed and our investigation subsequently
showed he had entered into, and therefore,
notwithstanding those statements to us that
he was not identified.
Mr. Grinnell concluded by saying the
jury had the power to exact the lives of
some of the prisoner-; to others they might
give a term of years in the penitentiary,
and some might be acquitted. He would
not ask the jury to take the life of Oscar
Neebe. the proof was not sullleient to con
vict Neebe; but some of them, Spies.
FNcher, Parsons and Schwab, ought to
have the extreme penalty iwlininisUcreil
The anarchists were deathly pale while
Mr. Grinnell with tremendous earnestness
and pointing his hand to the prisoners wid
Personally I have not a word to say against
these men"; but the law demands that they
be punished. They have violated the law,
and you, gentlemen of the jury, stand be
tween the living and the dead. Do your
duty. Do not disagree; if you think some
of them do not deserve the death penalty,
give them a life sentence: but do not dis
agree. Mr. GriimcH's voice was broken. He
said; Gentlemen, this is not a pleasant
task for me, but it is my duty and yours.
The closing words ot then'tate's attorney
were listened to with rant attention. The
great crowd was still as death, int a whis
per or rustle broke the stillness. The an
archists sat upright in their seats. On the
faces of all were set hard lint showing the
intense anxiety of their mind-.
At 12 o'clock .Judge Garry instructed the
jury. He gave the usual definitions of
murder and its punishment. The jury
must not go beyond the evidence to hunt
up doubts, nor "must they entertain merely
conjectural doubts. To justify an acquit
tal the doubt must be reasonable An ac
ces-ory, the court defined, is one who,
being present, aided or encouraged it and
such accessory shall le con-idcred as a prin
cipal and be punished accordingly. Such
accessory, within or without the state, may
be indicted and convicted before, after or
at the same time as the principal, whether
the principal is convicted or amenable to
justice or not. If defendants threw the
bomb then defendants were m conspiracy
and guilty of murder. If it was an anar
chist conspiracy and defendants were par
ties to it, then they are guilty of murder,
though the date of the culmination of the
conspiracy is not fixes!
The defendants should be acquitted un
less the jury were constrained to find them
guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If a
reasonable, doubt was raised as to the guilt
of the accused on evidence or by the argu
ment of counsel, or any hypothesis Con
sistent with the evidence, that doubt was
decisive in favor of the prisoners acquittal.
A verdict of not guilty meant only tint the
guilt of the accused had not been demon
strated in the precise form charged by law
Evidence io convict must be Wond any
reasonable doubt consistent with any by
nothesis of innocence
No jury should
convict a citizen oi crime on im-re mi

aided, abetted or advised the explosion of
the bomb. Although the jurv should be
lieve the defendants advised generally the
commission, m certain contingencies, oi
acts amounting to crime, yet if the set was
committed by some third party of his own
hate, malice or ill-will, and not materially
influenced bv the advice of defendants, or
if he was instructed only by the advice of
other parties not yet charged with crime,
the defendants were not responsible.
If the jury believe that on the night of
May 3d a meeting was held at Greifs hall
at which some of the defendants were pres
ent and it was determined in the event of a
collision between police and strikers, cer
tain organizations should meet at certain
places, and committees should be appointed
to attend the places where attacks by the
police might be exacted and rejKjrt attacks
to the armed sections that such action
might Ih? resisted and the police ousted and
o'her public works destroyed, and if the
jury further found that on the night of
Mav -ith, unknown persons threw a oomt)
which killed Dcagan, and the jury were
not satisfied that the act causing the death
of Dcagan was in furtherance of the com
mon design above stated, but unauthorized
act of any individual on his own responsi
ble, noue of the defendants, should be held
responsible for the murder on account of
the meeting at Grief's hall.
Having "completed the lengthy instruc
tion hanuVd on behalf of defenilants, the
court instructed the jury on its own ljehalf
as follows: If advice and encouragement
to murder was given and murder done in
pursuance of such advice and encourage
ment those who gave such advice and en
couragement are gulty of murder I ulcss
the evidence, either direct or circumstantial,
or loth, proves the guilt of one or more of
the defendants on this principle v) twiy
Unit there is no reasonable doubt, your duty
to them requires vou to acquit them. If it
does so prove, then your duty to the state
require you to convict tlictn so guilty.
The c:ie of each defendant should be.
considered with the same care and scrutiny
as if he alone were on trial.
If a conspiracy, having violence and mur
der as its object were fully proved, then
the acts and declarations of the conspiracy
are the acts and declamtionsor eaih
But the declaration of any conspirator
before or after the 4th of May which are
merely narrative to what had Iron or
would le done, and not made to aid
in the act are not Mifilcenl to com irt The
object of the eonspiracty are only e'.idence
against the ones who made them
The jury then retired at .'WO o clock.
Judge Garry, after consulting w ith attorneys
for both sid'es, ordered that the jury Ins

The jury was instructed that it could re
turn a verdict of all or oih of the prisoners
without conflicting with Ute terms of the
indictmeut. The term munxlauirht. r was
defined and the jury luring been mmirted
